rear track bar question....

Hey guys so i ve been looking around, and i havent found any rear track bars that are adjustable with an adjuster in the center like a tie rod end. Does anybody know if something like this even exists?

I don't know of one that adjusts like the drag bar has with its center adjustment link but....

Setting the trackbar length & centering the axle is perhaps more easily done than you may realize. Disconnect one end of a normal adjustable length aftermarket track bar. Jump up & down on the rear of the Jeep which will help the coil springs to self-center the Jeep over the top of the axle.

Then adjust the length of the track bar by screwing its end in or out until its mounting bolt hole aligns with the mounting bolt hole in the mounting bracket. Insert the track bar, insert the bolt & tighten the nut, you're done. It is centered "well enough" since the axle moves left-right on its own as the suspension moves up & down anyway.
